Is it going to be a lowrider or have a more aggressive off road look?

Off too a good start. Wheel base is off a tad but should be fixable.

Thanks man, the wheels base is off but it's very hard to work it with the front mount. As of now it has 2 F150 and 2 hummer center pieces for that length, not a whole lot I can do now, maybe at a later date

Thanks man, it will be a offroader for the most part. Modern as in 2000-06 or even newer?

If you can find a 1/24 kit let me know and I'll build it, only seen one newer but it was for a fire truck kit that cost like 100 for the body and rear box

Not sure on the bead locks.. but the screws make them look kind of too big.

Looks good though

not sure how?

a little paint on them will help, just dont know the color
the pics do nothing for it, looks better in person (of course)

Actually it might just be the pictures and me being tired doesn't help.

I think the screws are fine actually.
I'm just used to bead locks like this

Looking good! I didn't know if I would like the brown/light brown paint, but it looks pretty good actually.
